Product Update: Enhancements to Surge Protection Adder Options

04/30/2018

After evaluating surge protection options for Franklin Electric Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), the size of the surge protectors has been increased to allow for corner-grounded delta, as well as other 3-phase supplies. This change will prevent incorrectly sizing a surge protection adder, which could result in nuisance tripping and surge protector damage. The options will now allow the following maximum voltage before surge protection is provided:

Smartstart Pump Starters

Smartstart Pump Starters (1)

SubMonitor ConnectTM Starters

Submonitor Connect Starters

P-Series VFDs

Pseries Vfds

*NOTE: There is currently no surge protection option for corner-grounded delta 575-600 VAC systems.
